Résumé L’augmentation des prévalences d’obésité et de maladies chroniques aux Antilles françaises et l’identification d’une transition nutritionnelle avancée nécessitent une compréhension fine des mécanismes d’arbitrages des consommateurs quant à l’offre alimentaire. Nous proposons une étude expérimentale visant à estimer dans quelle mesure les con...
Article
Given the negative environmental effects of conventional agricultural techniques, the need for biodiversity-friendly agriculture systems that rely more on ecosystem services and less on chemical inputs is becoming increasingly urgent. In this paper, we focus on crop protection strategies that are alternatives to the use of pesticides. Diversificati...

Les agricultures ultramarines se caractérisent par la permanence d’exploitations de petite dimension, souvent diversifiées et valorisant des savoirs traditionnels. Elles ont le plus souvent des activités informelles et non marchandes importantes, qui échappent pour partie aux dispositifs statistiques et à la comptabilité agricole, et restent mal...

Les revenus agricoles en Nouvelle-Calédonie et en Guadeloupe : une approche par les moyens d'existence Les outils habituels de mesure des revenus agricoles ne sont pas toujours adaptés aux agricultures familiales de l'Outre-mer français, notamment parce qu'ils s'attachent principalement aux valorisations monétaires des productions. Dans le contexte...
Article
Managing the transition from conventional agriculture to agroecology needs to account for the diversity of farming systems. Here we evaluate whether indicators based on agrodiversity and implementation of agroecological practices can discriminate types of farms with different trajectories in the context of the agroecological transition. The indicat...
Article
This article deals with the implementation of the agroecological transition in the French West Indies. To address this challenge, a viability model is suggested. This approach offers an original framework to highlight agroecosystems dynamics by allowing consideration of simultaneously economic and agronomic dimensions. This holistic approach to agr...

Facing the challenge of the ecological transition of agriculture, biodiversity opens new avenues to enhance ecological interactions and reduce chemical input dependency. Designing biodiversity-based agrosystems requires an agroecological approach that combines key principles: exploring a wide range of concepts and solutions, adopting systemic reaso...
Article
Intensive agriculture practices have an important impact on soil biota, which can affect dramatically soil quality. In order to limit this impact, alternative agricultural practices are more and more applied. However, these practices are still in progress and thus, it is necessary to investigate their impact on soil activity. In this context, we st...

This article suggests a generic method to compute a composite index of vulnerability and resilience from a sustainable development perspective: the Net Vulnerability-Resilience Index. A worldwide application shows that both vulnerability and resilience are policy responsive. From the worst to the ideal, the state of vulnerability-resilience can be...
Article
Vulnerability–resilience indexes fail to grasp all dimensions of sustainability, whereas sustainable development has gained momentum. We fill this gap with a hierarchical multimetric composite index (Net Vulnerability Resilience Index: NVRI) whose robustness relies on a mathematical algorithm based on graph theory.
